Temple Street Children's University Hospital (Irish: Ospidéal Ollscoile Leanaí Sráid an Teampaill) is a children's hospital located on Temple Street, Dublin, Ireland. It is a teaching hospital of University College Dublin.
The hospital was founded by Mrs. Ellen Woodlock and her close friend Sarah Atkinson at 9 Upper Buckingham Street in 1872. It had just 8 beds when it opened. In 1876, the growing success of the hospital prompted the governing committee to invite the Religious Sisters of Charity to take over the running of the hospital.
In May 1879 the lease at 9 Upper Buckingham Street expired and, with the help of a bequest, the sisters purchased the former home of the Earls of Bellomont at 15 Temple Street. Over the following years adjoining houses were purchased such as the residence of the Parnell family, number 14. The hospital expanded in the 1930s with help from the Irish Hospitals' Sweepstake.
In line with other teaching hospitals, the facility changed its name from the "Children's Hospital, Temple Street" to the "Children's University Hospital, Temple Street" in the late 1990s and changed its name again to the "Temple Street Children's University Hospital" in 2012.
